Wild Harvested Cupuacu Butter (Theobroma Grandifolorium) is primarily found in Northern Brazil in the Amazonian Forests. Cupuacu and Cocoa Butters are cousins with Cupuacu containing a richer pulp which is softer, creamier and lighter in texture. It melts on contact with our skin and absorbs quickly. The cold pressed butter comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Cupuacu Tree harvested at least 4 times a year. This process is labor intensive and more expensive than cocoa butter due to the fact that the seeds must be opened with sharp scissors and ground by hand. The result is a intensive moisturizer rich in the aroma of chocolate and fruit that is sweet and exotic. To us at Sweet Life Spa, we would equate the scent to a chocolate covered cherry - its fabulous! In the Amazon, the butter is made into a chocolate confection called "Cupulate", ice cream and other sweets or consumed right out of the seed.
The Cupuacu Butter we use at Sweet Life Spa is is of the freshest and highest quality direct from Brazil and rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, Vitamin A & C and Phosphorous. Cupuacu contains Phytosterols that act as anti-inflammatory agents that fight off free radicals responsible for aging our skin. Referred to as "Vegetable Lanolin" it has the ability to absorb and retain 200% more moisture than Lanolin derived from sheep.
